Specs: Windows 7
Well first off, my battery wouldn't charge of all of sudden! I've had my laptop for about 9 months, but not it won't charge. IT says that it's detected but won't charge. I tried to restart it to see what was wrong, but than, there was a sound at the beginning of the start up that said something like my adapter wasn't the correct one, but it was the same one from the box when I ordered the laptop. AFTER I continued with start up, my computer is stuck on the Windows 7 Loading Screen. I don't even see the portrait where my account is or the box to type my password in, AND IT KEEPS FLASHING!

It works when I run it in safe mode, but I can't do anything because it says System Error 998.
PLEASE HELP!

It is possible that your power cord has gone bad or there is a problem in your battery. Try holding down the power button until it shuts down (maybe 6 seconds or so) and restart. If that does not help, try with power cord but no battery, and again with battery and no power cord. If it works with one, then the other may be bad. Remember your laptop should still be under warranty, if you can identify a simple problem like one of the above, you may just need to bring/send that back for replacement, if not, then just return for warranty repair.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

return it, call alienware or the reseller ask for an RMA# and get it sent back asap.
warranties are for this explicit reason, f something goes wrong during the warranty period"
